Atletico Madrid fight back to hold Real Madrid in La Liga

Ronaldo trained with his team-mates on Saturday ahead of the Madrid derby against Atletico

Antoine Griezmann felt Atletico Madrid turned in a poor derby day performance against Real Madrid before Cristiano Ronaldo's goal at the Santiago Bernabeu shocked them into action.

Real Madrid were the team pressing for the game's third goal in the final stages - and Ramos came close late on with a brilliant free kick that was kept out by Oblak - but Atletico held firm to pick up yet another positive result at the Bernabeu as they strengthened their grip on second spot.

Following loan spells at Mallorca and Almeria, he was drafted into the Rojiblancos in the 2015-16 season, making 13 league appearances involving three starts. It is not easy to reinvent yourself on the run as he has done.

Atletico Madrid wasted no time in getting the equalier in the 57th as Saul Niguez blew a good opportunity. "We deserved more today, clearly".

Vazquez also had the first half-chance of the second period when he met a cross from Marcelo in the 51st minute, but the attacker's header was never threatening to trouble Oblak. "He keeps the defenders busy so I have a little more freedom to try things on the pitch because I'm not always under pressure to always be in and around the opposition's box".

Although captain Sergio Ramos twice went close in stoppage time, Madrid were unable to force a victor and remain third - four points behind their neighbours in LaLiga.

In the aftermath of Kyrie Irving's season-ending surgery, it may also mean a second-round matchup with a depleted Celtics unit. Meanwhile, it's not all that surprising to see Philadelphia turn a trouncing into a knock 'em down, drag 'em out brawl.

"There are seven games left, football can change quickly, lots of points still to play for".

Madrid have now failed to beat Atletico in their last five league games at the Bernabeu (two draws, three defeats).

"We are up against two superpowers, like Madrid and Barcelona", he told a post-match news conference.

Griezmann will be a key part of the France team in Russian Federation this summer, alongside Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, Chelsea ace N'Golo Kante and Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe. What we have done in this decade is tremendous, Atletico fans should be proud of how their team is competing. "We also have our good players that they should be anxious of".

"We have competed very well against Madrid in these last years".
